It's impressive how the Bruins have rebounded after that horrible cheap shot that Rome put on Horton, that's a big ol rally hat, but the series eventually will return to Vancouver, eh? Was Rome a critical component in the Canucks lineup?

There was a discussion here recently of the zen of home court advantage and in many cases there is a comfort level at home.

Don't mean to pee in your cheerios because you're a dedicated fan, but having witnessed Vancouver kick the snot out of the Sharks, they appear invincible at home.

I remain impartial so for your sake, Go Bruins!

Aside from the psychological boost of playing at home, in hockey there are also rules specific to that which make it beneficial to play on home ice, like who gets to make the last line change and that sort of thing. I'm rooting for Boston, but unfortunately with Vancouver having the home ice advantage for games 5 and possibly 7, I'm worried it may go their way.

I personally loved the submarine hit on one of the Sedin sisters late in the third period. And the machine Tim Thomas giving Burrows a nice whack to the shins. AND the pleasure of watching Luongo skate to the bench in shame. Vancouver plays dirty, so I say let 'em reap what they sow. I LIKE dirty play, in a George Carlin kind of way. I like knowing there's the possibility of a career-ending injury in every game, it keeps it interesting.

I think Mike Milbury calling the Sedin sisters Thelma and Louise may be the zenith of quality sportscasting.

the only issue I have with that comparison is that Thelma and Louise actually had some guts. The Sedins are more like Kardashian sisters - all fluff with absolutely no real substance. what a couple of prissy little Sallies (who must have adopted Burrows into their little Sally family along the way too)

That's the first thing Milbury has been right about since 1985

YAAAAAAAAAAAAA B's, It is so close you can smell it B's fans, please, please bring that energy and attitude to Vancouver Friday Night. I can see the B's are wearing them down and playing great D, how about the PK that has been a thing of Beauty. 2 more to go! It is so nice to finally have a good solid (possibly Stanley Cup champs) hockey team in Boston again! I hate Vancouver! Let's go B's!!!!!!!!!! RBNW, this is awesome, reminds of 1990 but this series the B's are in it, they were not in 1990!
